With all the changes this country has made this year with the passing of the Health Care bill, I have been very worried that my wonderful health care benefits would change, be eliminated, or go up in price.
There have been many reports on the news, that many people are finding their premiums have increased dramatically, and that some companies are re-thinking or eliminating their retiree health benefits. I have been extremely worried and anxiously waiting news to see what changes we would have this next year.
I retired from USAA Insurance and have great health care benefits. I knew if any company would take care of their employees and retirees, it would be USAA....but I was still very worried.
We have our annual enrollment every October and I have been anxious to see what the changes would be.
Today, I finally got some info and have found out:
1. We still have coverage.
2. The price is the same!
Phew....sigh of relief!
Here in the US, health insurance is a biggie and I very much appreciate having it, and for a very reasonable cost. If we lost our health insurance benefits, I'm not sure what we would do about our full timing dream. It would definitely be a consideration.
So if any of you are looking for any kind of car or home insurance, give USAA a try. They insure the military, but have recently changed their membership criteria. Just a little plug for them....gotta keep them strong and profitable :)
So how about the Chilean miners rescue? Amazing, isn't it?
Droid tethering still functional. I'm beginning to think I have the problem solved :)
Today is day #3 of Al being out of town. I always have big intentions of getting a lot done, but usually it doesn't work out too well, but today's the day!
